Symposium EL03—Multiferroics and Magnetoelectrics
Single phase or composite multiferroics show two or more ferroic (ferroelectric, ferro/anti-ferro magnetism, ferroelasticity …) orderings; while single phase or composite magnetoelectrics are the group of materials that exhibit strong coupling between ferroelectric and magnetic order. There has been significant progress in demonstrating variety of multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials and devices that exhibit strong magnetoelectric coupling. More recently, new mechanisms are being explored for achieving larger magnetoelectric coupling in thin film heterostructures and nanoscale geometries. This symposium will focus on recent developments in the physics, materials science and applications of multiferroic and magnetoelectric single phase and composite materials and devices. Abstracts are solicited on new multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials exhibiting strong magnetoelectric coupling, synthesis of single crystal and textured complex oxide composites, nanoscale single domain multiferroic geometries, layered multiferroic and magnetoelectric heterostructures, characterization techniques, and device applications including sensors, antennas, memory devices, transducers, dual phase energy harvesting, tunable electronics and high frequency signal processing.
